PrimeRevenue Launches B2B Payments Platform to Optimize Early and On-Time Payment for Global Supply Chains
PrimeRevenue, Inc., the leading provider of technology-enabled B2B payments and working capital solutions, announces its newest innovation: The PrimeRevenue SurePay platform. As the first tool of its kind, the SurePay platform streamlines B2B payment services to enable easy and accessible early and on-time payment solutions for the entire supply chain.

Since 2003, PrimeRevenue's core offering has historically focused solely on early payment solutions such as supply chain finance, dynamic discounting, and accounts receivable finance. As the global business landscape evolves, PrimeRevenue has developed additional solutions that address a broader range of B2B payment needs.

The SurePay platform ensures every supplier gets paid on time, every time by simplifying the B2B payments ecosystem. Customers can consolidate their entire supplier base onto one simple-to-use payments tool, eliminating cumbersome and manual processes that are costly, time-consuming, and error prone. As a result, clients save costs and streamline AP/AR processes.

"The PrimeRevenue SurePay platform automates the AP/AR payment process, so once approved invoices hit our system, the platform handles the rest," said Gavin Cicchinelli, COO of PrimeRevenue. "Suppliers can confidently manage their cash flow with an intuitive platform that provides comprehensive reporting, transparency into invoice approval status, visibility into upcoming payments, automated remittance advice reporting, and so much more."

Global businesses face many payment challenges, from jurisdictional payment regulations and lack of standardized payment terms to the administrative burden that comes with managing multiple ERP systems or payment platforms.

At its core, PrimeRevenue has always been a payments company. As we grow, a natural evolution for PrimeRevenue is to expand into a new sphere of B2B payments. For us, that means developing innovative solutions that serve the entire supply chain – regardless of industry, jurisdiction, currency, or early payment offering."

PJ Bain, CEO of PrimeRevenue

Visa | December 08, 2021

Visa (NYSE: V), the world’s leader in digital payments, today announced the launch of Visa’s Global Crypto Advisory Practice, an offering within Visa Consulting & Analytics (VCA) designed to help clients and partners advance their own crypto journey. This comes at a moment when digital currencies are taking greater hold in the popular consciousness – according to research released today from Visa, awareness of crypto among financial decision makers surveyed is near universal at 94% around the world.i For financial institutions eager to attract or retain customers with a crypto offering, retailers looking to delve into NFTs, or central banks exploring digital currencies, understanding the crypto ecosystem is a vital first step. Through their work with more than 60 crypto platforms, Visa’s global network of consultants and product experts have deep expertise to help financial institutions evaluate the crypto opportunity, develop concrete strategies, and pilot new user experiences and innovations like crypto rewards programs and CBDC-integrated consumer wallets. We’ve seen a material shift in our clients’ mindset in the last year, from a desire to explore and experiment with crypto, to actually building a strategy and product roadmap.” Claudio Di Nella, Head, Visa Consulting & Analytics, Europe. VISA STUDY EXPLORES CONSUMER ATTITUDES AND ADOPTION OF CRYPTO Client interest in building crypto solutions comes as new Visa research shows significant awareness and adoption among consumers globally. In a new global study, “The Crypto Phenomenon: Consumer Attitudes & Usage,” Visa found that nearly one-third of respondents have directly engaged with crypto – either as an investment vehicle or as a medium of exchange. And globally, nearly 40% of crypto owners surveyed report they would be likely or very likely to switch their primary bank to one that offers crypto-related products in the next 12 months. “Crypto represents a technological shift for money movement and digital ownership,” said Antony Cahill, Deputy CEO, Visa, Europe. “As consumers change their approach to investing, where they bank, and their views on the future of money, every financial institution will need a crypto strategy.” Surveying more than 6,000 financial decision makers across eight markets (Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Germany, Hong Kong, South Africa, the U.K. and U.S.), the Visa study uncovered the following insights: The crypto headlines are having an impact. Awareness of crypto is almost universal at 94% globally among survey participants with discretion over their household finances. A significant segment is using or investing with crypto: Nearly one in three crypto-aware adults already own or use cryptocurrency, and the majority of that group (62%) say their use has increased in the past year. Engagement is higher in emerging markets. 37% of crypto-aware consumers in emerging markets use or own crypto compared to 29% in developed markets. Key motivators include wealth-building and belief in crypto as the future of financial services. The biggest drivers of owning and using cryptocurrency are to take part in the “financial way of the future” (42%) and to build wealth (41%) – both forward looking motivators. Crypto-linked cards and crypto rewards are attractive. Among current crypto owners, 81% express interest in crypto-linked cards, which allow you to convert and spend crypto at the retailers where you shop in the same way you can use a debit or credit card. 84% are interested in crypto rewards, which allow you to earn crypto as a reward for your card spending. Consumers are willing to switch banks in search of crypto products. Globally, 18% of survey participants say they would be likely or very likely to switch their primary bank to one that offers crypto-related products in the next 12 months. This is particularly true for emerging markets, which jumps to 24%. Among consumers who already own cryptocurrency, nearly 40% are willing to make the switch.

Operating under the Paymentology name, the merger creates a new force in payment solutions; giving banks and fintechs the technology, team and experience to issue and process Mastercard, Visa and UnionPay cards, across 49 countries.

Banks and fintechs are racing to provide customers with digital and data-driven features. They are highly receptive to working with a single issuer-processor that can provide that, across the globe."

Banks, digital banks and fintechs need support and expertise to help them issue cards and process payments.” About Paymentology Paymentology is the first truly global issuer-processor, giving banks and fintechs the technology, team and experience to issue and process Mastercard, Visa and UnionPay cards across 49 countries (and counting).
